Serve this easy baked pasta alongside grilled chicken, beef, or pork, or as a meatless main dish.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook ziti according to package directions; drain and return to pot.

Step 2

Stir together Alfredo sauce and sour cream; toss with ziti until evenly coated. Spoon half of ziti mixture into a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish.

Step 3

Stir together ricotta cheese and next 3 ingredients; spread evenly over pasta mixture. Spoon remaining pasta mixture evenly over ricotta cheese layer; sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.

Step 4

Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until bubbly.

Step 5

Note: Ziti pasta is shaped in long, thin tubes; penne or rigatoni pasta may be substituted. For testing purposes only, we used refrigerated Buitoni Alfredo Sauce.

Chef's Notes

Prepare up to 1 day ahead; cover and refrigerate. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes, and bake as directed.

I made this last night and my family loved it! The only difference was I used a full box of the spiral noodles instead of ziti and I also put in an entire bag of the Tyson's frozen grilled chicken strips and used two full15 oz jars. of garlic Alfredo sauce. Because of that I did have to cook it a bit longer about 45 minutes. But it was very creamy and not dry at all.

I used elbow macaroni instead of ziti and it was a very nice alternative to our typical macaroni and cheese.

This is a family favorite! Easy to make, it is filling and the cheese makes it a definite comfort food. I serve it w/ a salad and garlic bread.
